I know I´m not the norm when it comes to sleeping 8 hours a night. I´ve been a sleepyhead all my life, up until now.
I´m 56, and I believe that sleeping enough really helps me look and feel my best.
Most women struggle to get even 6 hours in every night, and perhaps you are one of them.
4 life-hacks for better sleep and healthy aging
1.- Follow the 10, 3, 2, 1 rule.
This means that 10 hours before bed, you should stay away from caffeine, 3 hours before bed you need to stay away from food and alcohol, and 2 hours before bed, you really must abstain from work.
One hour before bed, make sure to turn off all your screens.
2.- Have a consistent routine.
Establish a ritual before you go to bed, and make sure you go to bed at around the same time every day.
3.- Make sure your bedsheets are the best they can be.
After all, you spend a third of your life in bed, on average; the fabric touching your skin should be chemical-free and made in a healthy and holistic environment
4.- Don’t allow people into your space who you don’t trust or who make you anxious.
Avoid arguments in your room.
It´s a sacred space, leave it that way.
